A few weeks ago, I put a poll up on this site (you can still see it to the right) asking the question How do you feel about how much tax you pay?

While it’s admittedly a non-scientific poll, the same could be said about the voting for the final roster spot on Major League Baseball’s all-star team.

You: But at least there were millions of votes.

True, but not necessarily millions of voters.

You: Point taken.

Remember, no one knows you’re a dog on the Internet.  Anyway, the results were a bit surprising, as more than three-quarters fell voted “My tax burden is too high.”

You: Why did that surprise you?

With half of all Americans paying no income taxes, I thought I’d see more people happy with their tax burden.  True, it’s a small non-scientific sample.  Aside from the aforementioned caveats, why do you think the results are as they are?  Have you voted yet?

    I haven’t voted yet because my answer is torn. On one hand, I feel like I should pay more taxes to reap the benefits like Canada or France – but on the other I’m making more money than ever before and yet it doesn’t seem like it because of the city wage taxes and health insurance costs. hmmmm

    @Steph: Thanks for the comment. I understand your conundrum.
